End of Summer Reflections

Tonight I had dinner at Frank's with Lucy, Eliza, Trent, Annie and Max. We decided it was appropriate to toast, and I decided that it was even more appropriate to toast to "here's to the end of summer, beginning of fall, which i couldn't help notice today, with the leaves fallen on the ground." Annie remarked that that was a very Chinese thing for me to do, making a toast sound like a proverb.

Here are some highlights from my summer:

Trip to Thailand and China

The cutest damn kittens in the world lived outside our hostel in Beijing.

Seeing Dally made me intensely happy and really brought out the woman in me, if i do say so myself.

Shanghai = The Future

Singing karaoke. Bet you didn't know it could be this stressful.

Doggy Downtime

Hans Tang's new puppy Huey.

Duke meets Huey. Neither were quite sure what to make of the other.

mi familia.


The Foods of Summer
One of the best things about summer is the abundance of fresh, delicious food. The farmer's market was especially good at providing.

Millions of peaches, peaches for me.

Beefsteak. mmmm...

Using all those fresh ingredients to make a vegan meal...

for newly (and obnoxiously) vegan Tront.
